Journal of Child Language, v10 n3 p639-60 Oct 1983
The relationship between knowledge and reasoning was explored through 12 males' and 12 females' (aged 12, 15, and adult) solutions to written syllogisms containing four conjunctions, and evaluations of single sentences for their pragmatic content. The relationship between comprehension of pragmatic uncertainty and detection of uncertain conclusions in reasoning increased with age. (MSE)
